Ponder:When falling into comparisons with those who have seem to have “more” -- or when my children fall into the trap of comparing -- how can I dig deeper to reflect on, and share with them, those things we can store up together that really matter?
Pray:Dear Lord, in our culture of excess, we can easily lose sight of the true treasures, and waste this “one wild and precious life,” as poet Mary Oliver phrased it, on things that don’t ultimately matter. Please help me have clear vision on the true treasures, of both this world and the next.
